The Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) (Chartered) has co-opted some of its corporate members into the institute’s council.
This, according to the institute, means that the corporate members are now represented at the highest decision-making body of the institute. 

President/Chairman of the council, NIM, Major-General Abdullahi Muraina (rtd), who stated this during the institute’s corporate members forum, said it was part of the management’s resolve to fully reintegrate corporate members into its activities.
He said the body hopes to collaborate more with the corporate members in the area of capacity building, where the institute has the requisite competencies to affect the nation’s workforce for better productivity. 
According to him, the forum is in tune with one of the deliberate policies of the present council of the institute to engage corporate members more in the institute’s activities. 
“We made this policy decision on the assumption of office because we realised that corporate members of the institute, which were pivotal to the institute’s development right from inception are no longer as visible as they used to be in the affairs of the institute. We would embark on courtesy visits to some of the corporate members with a view to exploring areas of collaboration and co-operation,” he said.
Guest speaker and Chief Operating Officer of Ibom Air, George Uresi, who spoke on ‘Managing Many Permanently Moving Parts…How Possible?’ said to be a successful manager in Nigeria, one must have plans, be smart and think out of the box.
He said managing business in Nigeria is like one trying to maintain one’s balance on a mono-cycle, while simultaneously juggling many permanently moving parts of different sizes and weights. 
Speaking on whether it is possible to manage successfully and sustainably with so permanently moving parts, he gave instances on how his organisation, Ibom Air, had made an impact.
He said boosting air traffic by the Akwa Ibom State Government was the best way to make the airport a viable and more impacting environment.
